Formed in Tokyo in the 90’s EES left their native Japan at the end of the millennium to see what they could make of America and the rest of the world.

“Mixing dark fuzzy stoner rock riffs with classic rock sensibilities and addictive song-writing hooks, EES occupy the gaping void somewhere between Queens Of
The Stoneage, AC/DC and Black Sabbath.”
“You’d have to be the most miserable of metal purists or the ultimate elitist trend follower not to allow yourself to simply enjoy this band…”
